Fear the wrath of the Hurricanes.

Mount Vernon Christian might be just a 1B school, but its girls soccer squad is a fearsome foe, something Coupeville was reminded of Saturday afternoon.

Playing their third game in a four-game road trip, the Wolf booters weren’t able to generate much offense against a very-effective MVC defense, falling 3-0.

The non-conference loss drops Coupeville to 1-5-1 on the season.

The Hurricanes, who haven’t given up more than a single goal in a game, are flying high, posting a 5-1 record.

MVC has outscored its first six opponents by a combined score of 21-5.

The Wolves are having a bit more trouble with their scoring differential, having been shut-out in four of seven games.

Playing, and losing, during back-to-back weekends, has dinged the ol’ win/loss record a bit.

“Saturdays do not seem to agree with us,” said CHS coach Kyle Nelson. “We were half a step slow today, and ultimately that cost us.”

Coupeville returns to the Island to wrap up its longest road trip of the season, visiting Langley this Tuesday, Sept. 25, to face South Whidbey.

CHS is 1-2 in North Sound Conference play, and a win against the Falcons (1-1 in league, 3-3 overall) would propel the Wolves up the standings.

The Island rivalry clash kicks off at 6 PM at South Whidbey High School.
